Experiment with GIMP's new single window mode
Authored by: jralls on Mar 10, '10 09:04:23PM

Why not build it completely native (with Quartz)? You can use MacPorts (add +quartz and +no-x11 to variants.conf) or Gtk-OSX. The GIMP developers make good use of both Gtk's quartz backend and the Mac integration toolkit provided by Gtk-OSX.

Experiment with GIMP's new single window mode

But this doesn't seem to be easy at all, at least after reading the - often outdated - information available on the web.

Well, if the current GIMP/X11 packagers would come out with an experimental 2.7.x Mac OS X build ( la Ubuntu in this hint), that would be very nice (considering also the quite good quality of their stable realeases): but obviously that's for them to decide... ;-) :-)

A truly native GIMP (Aqua, without the need for X11) would be even better (as also with Inkscape, where a native version seems to be in the works): but probably there are still big problems to be solved before that will be possibile.
